It would be much easier for a moderator to update idea states if there were bulk actions that could be performed. For example, in moderator view, each idea on a page of 25, 50, etc. ideas would have a checkbox, with a corresponding link at the top and bottom of each page to check/uncheck all. The moderator could then select a status from a drop-down to apply to all checked ideas, thereby mass-moderating a group of comments to any state (closed, in review, etc.) or allowing for bulk merging/deletion. This would increase moderator efficiency when dealing with high-volume queues of ideas, as they wouldn't have to moderate each idea individually.
